You should consider using Hex Editor for such purposes, as normal editors don't display non-printing characters unless its some side-effect or glitch. I suggest Bless : And in console you can use Midnight Commander's mcview - F4 switches to hex mode:
emelFM2 is a file manager that comes with an internal GTK-based text viewer and editor (bound to F3 and F4). It has no syntax highlighting. To install use the emelFM2 PPA (release).
You could try pastebinit, you'll get a link to open the json file in your browser: sudo apt-get install pastebinit cat data.json | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com
Remove the extension of the file, I assume that it is "json". Therefore no syntax highlighting should be applied. $ cp your_file.json your_file $ gedit your_file
